What could await us if we don't get out there and stop it

So fetid real Donald Trump has released his first TV ad, a stunningly unsavory mess of race-baiting, fear-mongering and lies that highlights the long, dark, mournful plunge this country has taken from our better angels. The grainy=sinister black and white ad begins with images of Obama and Hillary quickly and subtly morphing into photos of the San Bernardino shooters - get it?!? - and goes downhill from there. The real Trump says Muslim terrorists are everywhere which is why we need a "temporary shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until we can figure out what’s going on" - the most coherent policy proposal and Bestest Line Ever - and then Donald will "quickly cut the head off ISIS and take their oil," even though actually it's not theirs, and then he'll "stop illegal immigration by building a wall on our southern border that Mexico will pay for.” This promise is accompanied by overhead video of ant-like brown folks swarming toward a wall that turns out to be Moroccan migrants trying to cross the border into Spanish territory in 2014; his campaign said “No shit, but that’s what our country is going to look like" - even though actually illegal immigration has steadily dropped - and the "Pants on Fire" lie was "1,000% on purpose," so it's all good. Or, umm, not.

Twitter had fun posting photos of other swarming "Muslims"
